Hi ed001, Has ejaria gone on loan to reading? i friend told me he failed the medical, i couldn't find any such news.

akshit

{Ed001's Note - I don't know about any failed medical, not even sure he was to have one, but he is now registered as a loan player with Reading.}


1.) 09 Jan 2019 08:52:34
Thanks for the reply ed. don't think he has a future a LFC after the rangers saga. Shame as i feel he was doing pretty well for himself at rangers playing wise. let's see if he can redeem it at reading.

{Ed001's Note - he was abysmal at Rangers. He never had a future before then and he certainly doesn't after his lazy efforts there. I am going to have to assume you never saw him play for Rangers if you feel he was doing well there.}


2.) 09 Jan 2019 09:47:46
NO i didn't see it, just heard gerrard saying he is doing well in one of the interviews when he scored a goal for them.

Hello eds, any interest in Luca torreira of Sampdoria from Liverpool?

akshit

{Ed002's Note - Everton were the Merseyside team who enquired about Lucas Torreira - not Liverpool.}


1.) 22 Feb 2018 15:32:15
Is he considered by Napoli as a replacement for Jorginho?


2.) 23 Feb 2018 05:00:11
I think Luca torriera is the kante of Serie A. Beastly little dynamite of a player. But of course as Ed002 has cleared it was everton and not us who enquired.
Would love him at LFC though.


 

 

05 Dec 2017 06:45:28
hi eds,
anything in the aubameyang rumours?
reading reports LFC could well sell studger, origi and ings and go for him?
if we sell all three doesn't sound bad but his wages might probably cut off any deal.

akshit

{Ed002's Note - Dortmund are willing to let Aubameyangadingdong go as they are sick of the backage. He has been offered to a couple of clubs and Liverpool might well be interested - but someone would need to make way from the first team - not the players you have listed. It is reasonable that Ings could get a loan and Origi may well want to stay in Germany in the summer. Aubameyangadingdong has been offered to an English side and an Italian side already. The Italian side see the price as high for the risk of disruption, and they are currently in turmoil. The English side is looking at someone else initially. Sturridge I don't know. But none of these are really starters. I would not rule it out but I am not aware of any approach.}


1.) 05 Dec 2017 10:33:21
So sell three hard working squad players and sign a disruptive flake who will want to start ahead of our front 3? And that too for an obscene amount of money? No chance unless Salah leaves in the summer.


2.) 05 Dec 2017 10:36:32
Ed when you say someone would need to leave mate I take it would have to be the likes of Firmino, Couts, Mane etc?

{Ed002's Note - He would want to be a starter - so go figure.}


3.) 05 Dec 2017 10:48:27
A 4-2-3-1 with Mane, Firmino and Salah behind Aubameyang would be incredible. Don’t think it would be my priority though as the defence must be our first thought and with the goals we’re scoring is it really worth the disruption?


4.) 05 Dec 2017 11:20:29
If our "Transfer Committee" have half a brain between them they'll leave well alone but I'm not sure they have the half of a brain.


5.) 05 Dec 2017 11:57:40
Only way I’d see it possible for PEA to be in the first team would be to drop bobby into coutinho role once he’s on that plane to Barcelona.


6.) 05 Dec 2017 12:00:19
Yeah right. wasnt Sadio Mane also seen as disruptive? He had prior disciplinary issue with Koeman. Looks what happen. We are not talking about some random striker. We are talking about most prolific striker last season in whole Europe. He is in bracket Lewandowski, Suarez, Kane. So please wise up and talk sense when you guys write as if he is another striker like Balloteli.


7.) 05 Dec 2017 12:29:42
There is a difference between a player who is disruptive because he doesn't fully apply himself and it gets on people's nerves, and one who just sacks off full games cause he wants to go out on the lash with his mates. He is more of a problem for squads than balotelli is, that's why he's discussed like balotelli by anyone who knows the first thing about him.


8.) 05 Dec 2017 13:37:36
Bottom line is klopp knows him. If he wants to sign him he will have confidence that can manage any issues and find a place for him in the starting 11. If he is a disruptive force surely Klopp will let it be known to the transfer folks to stay away. Nothing to worry about at all folks.


9.) 05 Dec 2017 13:46:31
Ed002 mate. which clubs (to the best of your knowledge) are currently showing any interest in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?

{Ed002's Note - See above - I have said that they have spoken to a couple of clubs - and that is it at the moment.}


10.) 05 Dec 2017 14:04:56
I was at the recent Dortmund v Bayern game and kept a beady eye on Aubameyang as i was keen to see how good he was. What a let down. He was a passenger for the whole game and did nothing, with Robben stealing the show. Admittedly, this is a single game, against Bayern and i had been sampling the local beers for most of the day, but from that showing, i wouldn't want him. On a side note, 83,503 people singing you'll never walk alone is truly a wonderful experience. especially with beer.


11.) 05 Dec 2017 18:28:20
Ed is there any truth that where looking for a striker Bec firmino is guna play coutino role when he leaves?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool looking for strikers in January. The club is doing just great going forward and I doubt even Klopp would be stupid enough to screw that up right now.}


12.) 05 Dec 2017 19:10:54
Thanks Ed way I’d read it seemed more about summer plans when coutino leaves.

{Ed002's Note - I am pretty certain Liverpool are not making plans like that right now.}


13.) 06 Dec 2017 01:43:15
Am I wrong to think this would be a poor move for the club?


 

 

12 Aug 2017 03:27:35
Hi Ed's, a very good morning.
Would Barcelona be willing to include sergi Roberto in a deal for pipco? Is he on the surplus list? More importantly would the forces at liverpool be interested in player+cash kind of deal?
Thank-you for you kindness in this unkind transfer window.

akshit

{Ed002's Note - He is not on the surplus list but the clubs interested in him have had little luck getting Barcelona to talk. Liverpool has shown no interest to date.}


1.) 12 Aug 2017 09:15:07
Pipe dream unfortunately. After Messi, Suarez, Busquets, Iniesta, Pique and Alba I would say Roberto is probably the next best they have. He is a really classy midfielder and not a bad right back either.


2.) 12 Aug 2017 09:29:44
I get a feeling that any player on Barca's surplus list to be included in a deal would be an above average yet nothing special player, which makes the whole idea of it unappealing.


3.) 12 Aug 2017 09:30:45
That team is slim pickings IMO apart from top two and pique.
Maybe Gomes and Ter Stegen + 80million and then we could maybe talk.

I also find it hard to believe that they wouldn't come back.
Real probably will if not as Phil is knocking on the door of best in CAM in world for me. A season in champions league and people start to take seriously.

Question for Ed02: Have Liverpool been aggressive enough in pursuit of players this transfer window? Do you think if we'd have put money where our mouth is we could've got things do for targets?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has gone about the transfers in the entirely wrong way - but it is nothing about money.}


4.) 12 Aug 2017 10:32:18
Did I just read "has Liverpool been aggressive enough this window? "
Only way they could have been more aggressive is if VVD and NK where bundled into the boot of Klopps BMW and driven to Melwood.

{Ed002's Note - He has a KR200 - there is only room for one of them.
https://twitter.com/WonderDogSparky/status/696334510737203200 }


5.) 12 Aug 2017 10:41:17
Should have looked outside the club for a sporting director promoting from within where a culture of incompetance has been prevelant for years just breeds more err incompetance . we have seen more of the same this transfer window. they should burn that rick parry guide to doing transfers.


6.) 12 Aug 2017 10:46:39
Why majorly weaken our team selling a player with years of contract when we can keep him, get a good year out of him and sell him for AT LEAST the same price judging by how transfers are rising year by year. its the same as Liepzig (why have no want or need to sell the player and we don't need the money) .


7.) 12 Aug 2017 13:38:16
8;minutes and our defence exposed. We are such a good team, something really needs to be done with our defence. Vvd as soon as. It'll be embarrassing but not as embarrassing as losing to mediocre teams.


8.) 12 Aug 2017 14:03:41
Ed, sorry couldn't find new post icon. Any idea why we didn't move for Joe Hart? It seems mad as we were the only team at the top he could've gone to bar city. He is surely an upgrade on what we currently have.

{Ed001's Note - because he is crap.}


9.) 12 Aug 2017 14:19:53
Totally agree Eds. The only reason he doesn't get called out on his mistakes is 'cause he's English.


10.) 12 Aug 2017 14:22:12
Didn't Torinos owner come out and say he didn't expect an England goalkeeper to make so many mistakes? Says it all really.


11.) 12 Aug 2017 14:44:44
Fair enough guys. I have to disagree with Steve wonder, England gks have had a hard time over last ten years, Carson Robinson and the other fella all made one mistake and we're dropped forever. I have always felt Hart was over rated but rest of country seemed to disagree. Until the euros where he was crap. What Hart does well is organise and control defence and I feel that is what we are lacking. But I buy that he has lost it.


12.) 12 Aug 2017 17:41:24
Nah it seems like he does superred but he just shouts loudly. Literally I think that is his only trick. Shouting and chest thumping.


13.) 12 Aug 2017 19:09:14
Sergi roberto is such a tidy passer, If we were to take him i would want him in CM, not being put as a rb like Barcelona shifted him out. Would still rather keep couts though.


14.) 12 Aug 2017 20:17:49
Dear Jurgen. we're going to take your star player and you can have anyone off our surplus list.

Yeh right!


15.) 12 Aug 2017 22:37:01
Under FSG, we haven't taken any surplus players as part of big money transfers out. I don't know if FSG think the supporters see such a scenario as Liverpool accepting cast-offs, but the sale of Torres, Sterling and Suarez didn't bring back any players from Chelsea, Man City or Barcelona.

I suspect it will be the case this time too. Why should Liverpool buy players who we don't need?


16.) 13 Aug 2017 07:04:17
@ superred91

losing to mediocre teams?

Last time I checked 3-3 was not a losing score line.


17.) 13 Aug 2017 15:28:23
Red, it sure felt like it was a loss .


18.) 13 Aug 2017 16:01:52
Fair point resend but we were losing 2.1 when I wrote that post and wasn't necessarily talking about watford. Was talking about defence in general.

Yeah, again I thought there were tonnes of positives from watford game.


19.) 14 Aug 2017 14:37:46
If Barcelona want coutinio and they want to offer a player or two in the deal then it has to be one of their top players. Next time they offer rahifina we should send em markovic in no 10 shirt. Don't think the part exchange is going to happen is it? Just psper talk. The first two offers were cash.

I think if we were to do a swap it has to be iniesta. If it truly is a iniesta replacement (pc) then we'll take the replaced player. The fact is, they just want the world's best south America players.


 

 

01 Jun 2017 11:02:35
So Mr. Peter moore is the new CEO.
Does it mean we can expect some Transfers FIFA style? I'd buy bale, one future player that goes 97 and one bonucci as i and pretty sure everyone else does when starting with a new FIFA season :P.

akshit

1.) 01 Jun 2017 14:13:53
I think that spending large amounts of money on a player has become unfashionable in many fans' eyes. Notably, clubs like City, PSG and the Chinese teams (in particular) are not well-respected amongst football supporters, and as such, a lot would like to see disassociation from these teams in the way that their club conducts its transfer business.

Add to that, there is a shared opinion now that there's something quite noble about spending less money on a player who turns out to be a world beater. Solanke is a perfect example, if he turns out to be a "30 goal a season striker" a lot of fans will respect the fact he cost not a lot and will want their club to do the same. At least that's how I see it. So with regard to Salah, a lot of supporters will be thinking there is some rough diamond out there, who is younger and cheaper. It's a no win situation, because if a club only buys cheap players and those players do not perform, the fans get on the owner's back.

people are completely forgetting that Matip is fit and available? or did i miss something.
fab matip vvd and roobo should be our backline against palace.
I.

akshit

1.) 16 Jan 2019 08:22:55
Actually, I'd go with Milner, Matip, VVD and Robbo. I think Fab is more valuable in the middle of the park (marginally more than Milner) .

I'd go with Fab, Hendo and Shaq in midfield, with the talented trio up front :)


2.) 16 Jan 2019 08:54:25
I would go Milner Matip VVD Robbo and then Fabs in midfield along side Gini (assuming he is fit) and then either Keita or Shaqiri.


3.) 16 Jan 2019 08:57:48
I would like to see Camacho, he looks promising too.

Also we definetly cannot go with fab at cb again. It would give us two non defenders in the team which is probably not good'


4.) 16 Jan 2019 10:54:13
Camacho wasn't good enough the other day in the cup, Palace will rip him apart.
I'd agree with Zed, we need Fab in midfield and Shaq.
I'm very nervous about this one it's the one I can see us Drawing.


5.) 16 Jan 2019 11:51:13
Agree about the Camacho part. I don't see what everyone else was seeing. Fast and capable midfielder or winger perhaps, but not a FB or a wingback. And I see him as a bit small to be able to take on some of the solid tough guys who play on the wings in the EPL. Zaha would run circles around him.


6.) 16 Jan 2019 12:31:05
We’ll definitely miss TAAs pace against Zaha.

Of the rest, I’d back a wily old fox like Milner.


7.) 16 Jan 2019 12:58:23
Agreed. What pace Milly lacks, he makes up for in PL experience.


8.) 16 Jan 2019 18:39:27
I would go with Milly at RB with Hendo and Fab protecting, myself cos Fab is more valuable to us at DM than at RB right now. After that, we get 10 days off and hopefully, more wounded bodies back.


9.) 16 Jan 2019 21:49:26
Can't believe Steven Caulker is still only 27, feels like he has been around ages!

Any particular reason why he has experienced a bit of a downward spiral with depression and addictions? Hopefully he can have a successful time in Turkey and enjoy the rest of his career.


 

 

14 Jan 2019 07:35:42
Ok I really want to move away from this madness of transfer season to our excellent season.

nobody imagined it beginning of the season in there wildest imaginations.
I would encourage members and fans in general to please focus on the season and not get carried away by who we sign in Jan or summer or what the state of finances are. let's just leave these things to people who are supposed to handle them and enjoy our phenomenal season and pray and support the club so that we can the lift that premier league trophy. This team deserves it. Its not one player this time around like torres or suarez, its the entire team that has pulled their act collectively as a group. This is something that has never transpired at LFC since our golden days. Liverpool grinding out results, liverpool getting them penalties, so much has gone our way this season and kudos to the players and whole management for playing like champions. long it may continue.
I hope people understand it is no mean feat dethroning Mancity. i just can't believe how relaxed i am watching LFC defend. Last year and a half i went half bald because of our defending. Now we have been just excellent. Onwards to palace and hammers at Anfield . i hope we win these games and get our hands firmly on that title.

akshit

1.) 14 Jan 2019 07:53:08
Great post that mate, refreshing to see such a post after recent BS about players we'll never sign and finances etc. I couldn't care less what's going on in the background, if we sign a player we support them no matter what but for now all I'm bothered about is watching how great this team are doing, I'm enjoying the present and looking forward to the future!

Fingers crossed for a Wolves win tonight!


2.) 14 Jan 2019 08:44:43
Some people seem to be more excited by the possibilty of transfers than what's happening on the pitch.
I can never get my head round that one frankly.


3.) 14 Jan 2019 08:57:46
i am so excited about the season were having and tbh im here cause of the community rather than rumours (i know even the site name has rumours on it) .

i don't really think we need anyone urgently, we just need to be abit more lucky with injuries! can't wait for the next game.


4.) 14 Jan 2019 09:02:59
Well I agree, sort of! I wouldn't expect any big signings this window as it is difficult to get what you want, what you really really want (bit of Spice Girls for Ed01 there, I know he's a fan) . So we should really be concentrating on getting players fit and prepared for the run in. Long term (this Summer), we should be trying to add quality to our squad and not just the first 11. Macca made a good point about a quality player rotating with the front 3, it makes sense. In this League if you don't keep on adding good players you go backwards. There are a lot of players possibly on their way out in the Summer, so unless we have a heap of good kids coming thru and ready, which I don't think we have then we need to invest to replace them and, for me they would need to be better or at least the potential to be better than who we are shipping out.


5.) 14 Jan 2019 09:16:21
Dont want to read much into Macca's post, yes as a fan he wishes for a good striker to rotate around with, but that is a wish. Macca has not suggested that LFC are in to buy someone like that, and people are assuming and twisting words sometimes which leads to some real heat on the forum, ultimately resulting in abuse.
We are here to discuss transfers and that leads to a discussion on finances and I do get it. It is supposed to be a website to serve that very purpose.
But the situation is very different today, we are in the midst of a season that LFC have not witnessed ever. Let us just enjoy that for a change. Why would you want any considerate change in a squad that has performed on a level better than city! Yes we may need players, but why do we need to shout out random names and then abuse each other and particularly the editors for fictional thinking of our own. Its baseless. We can afford to just relax and enjoy the season this time around. the performance of these group of warriors we have has made it possible for us. How many times has this happened? never! So let's just keep our transfer thoughts to ourselves and cheer and support this team to achieve the unprecedented. What happens elsewhere should not bother us.

{Ed025's Note - just one thing akshit, when you say "in the midst of a season that LFC have not witnessed ever"...were you not about in the 80,s mate?....it happened just about every season..


6.) 14 Jan 2019 09:31:43
no ed025, born in 89, unlucky to have not witnessed the golden era. the treble and the greatest CL win ever in history are my only highs from a tough time as a LFC fan. My dad loved LFC and i got it from him. but he stopped watching after the roy period still doesn't cuz he thinks it might be a curse. we had ngog as our main striker, haha its a good laugh now, but boy was that a time. konchesky, ngog, that rb i think it was degen and i think it was poulsen in midfield. maxi rodriguez was my favourite at that time! slim pickings then. or maybe i have co-incided everything. Boy have we come far and how.

{Ed025's Note - you missed out big time mate, worst years of my life of course.. :)


7.) 14 Jan 2019 09:49:36
More such times coming your way mate :) )

{Ed025's Note - dont i know it...its a bloody nightmare.. :)


8.) 14 Jan 2019 10:16:27
Dont forget ED025 football only started around 1992 according to those digging at us, always makes me laugh that 'never won a premier league comment', saw some on twitter yesterday calling Souness for not having won a premier league medal, what?! do some reading.

{Ed025's Note - i know mate, i remember when merseyside was the envy of every supporter and we ruled the roost, maybe the reds will be the start of getting us back to where we belong mate..


9.) 14 Jan 2019 10:29:22
My Ed025. So who was the biggest Monster in your nightmares? Ian rush? I believe he had a knack of scoring against Everton, especially in finals.

But I concur with the comments above. Your nightmares just might be returning for an extended period.

{Ed025's Note - rushie was a pain in the neck to us sg, he was a freak (in the best possible sense) who started the defending from the front concept, he had this awful knack of scoring as well...especially against us mate..


10.) 14 Jan 2019 10:27:10
Ed 25, football only started in 92 anyway. :)

{Ed025's Note - to the young pups it did robbo...mind you they think they invented sex as well mate.. :)


11.) 14 Jan 2019 14:41:21
"In the midst of a season we've not witnessed EVER" what are you talking about? You do know we've won the league 18 times don't you! Or did football only ever start in 1992 when the name changed to the premiership for you? It changed its name again to the Premier league is that the beginning of football maybe?

I don't know how old you are, but years ago there was a chocolate bar called marathon the name changed in the late 80's early 90's to snicker, its the same bar of chocolate same ingredients (smaller like, what a rip off) just a different name, see where I'm going with this. Can't believe what some people write on here at times 🙈.


12.) 14 Jan 2019 14:44:31
Hey ed,025, wasn't all bad for the blues. League winners and epic all Merseyside fa cup final.


13.) 14 Jan 2019 13:00:11
Lol love it Ed25.


14.) 14 Jan 2019 14:02:52
Ed025, i'm sure he was. i remember seeing some old video whereby interviews were conducted in the city of Liverpool about the departure of Rush to Juve and a man said 'thank God! '. to which the interviewer wisely guessed he was an Evertonian.

wonder what will you do to get someone like a Graeme Sharp, Alan Ball and Southall in the current team?

{Ed025's Note - personally....dig maggie thatcher up and make love to her live on granada reports.. :)


15.) 14 Jan 2019 18:08:48
A lot of good old fellas on the site :) get the gist not the words.
I wasn't blessed enough to enjoy Liverpool in the 70's and 80's. This season for me is the best I have witnessed.


16.) 14 Jan 2019 19:14:53
We’ve had a few seasons like this in fairly recent times - 2013/ 4 was a good one, also I remember when Ged had his heart surgery we were top of the league around this time too.


17.) 14 Jan 2019 20:11:51
Great thread, lads. We have had seasons like this in the past BUT the 13/ 14 season was not one of them. personally, I was never convinced that we would win the league UNTIL we went into the final game with a chance to win the PL with a win. That team was built on quicksand and w there was NO structure or direction coming from the manager and as a result, I knew that we could get unstuck with no way of coming back cos I did not trust BR. Hence, we we stumbled and handed City the title, I was non too fussed cos well, I wasn't buying it to begin with. This tho, is different.

I am so excited about our season as well cos anyone who watched the City game would tell you that THAT was some next level PL footie stuff, right there. i mean, the footie on show in terms of skill, tactics, intensity, passion etc was off the charts. It showed the utter gulf in class between both teams and the rest of the league. The chasm is that big.

I am just happy that my team is on the same level as City and Klopp and the boys made that happen. Even those who don't play for us anymore who were around when Klopp arrived, helped as well. Where this season takes us, I don't know BUT as long as we get to be top of the PL after every game for as long as possible, I am good with that.


18.) 14 Jan 2019 21:24:02
We were top of the league with 3 games left.

That’s a better position than we are in now Red Wolf.


19.) 14 Jan 2019 22:22:26
You're right, Ron and I still wasn't buying it then cos things were out of control on the pitch and in the stands. There was no structure, no order nor any management from the coach. In fact, it was his job to keep things calm as Klopp is doing now. He did not and I saved myself unnecessary heartbreak.

Like I said, I would only have believed it had we had a chance to win the league with a win at Anfield vs Newcastle. It did not happen and I was at peace with it then as I am at peace with it now. Guess what? The very same notion applies to this season where we have a far better team and a far better manager.


 

 

13 Jan 2019 04:00:51
Holy rubbish what happened yesterday. After a crucial win people still want to run with the past. Ed002 please for the gazillionth time on here, donot take abuse to heart. Also did you graduate from the savage comebacks University with masters in troll bashing?

akshit

 

 

13 Jan 2019 04:06:26
Lots of praise for fabinho and vvd and well deserved. But i think Gini is having a stellar season. He is consistently everywhere.

akshit

1.) 13 Jan 2019 05:37:57
Agreed. Gini's gone missing in maybe 2 or 3 games out of the many he has played, but who doesn't? The Man City mids aside, he is definitely up there with the best of the rest. Won't be long till Fab takes the crown of best LFC midfielder from Gini though. At first i thought we had bought a dud in Fab, but he looks great with each passing game. Hopefully Keita follows in his footsteps so that we don't need any reinforcements in CM for the forseeable future.

I've blasted him a lot this season but credit has to go to him, he's doing really well and proving me wrong, long may it continue. At the moment he's a must starter, nice one lad!


3.) 13 Jan 2019 08:39:30
I will put my hand up and say I was one of the people that didn’t really think gini was going to get a game this season but I would have to admit he’s first on the list of 3 for that part of Middlefield. Fair play to him he’s up he’s game for me.


4.) 13 Jan 2019 08:44:55
Is gini in his last year of contract if so I hope we get another one ready for him! I have liked him from day one he has been great for us very professional.


5.) 13 Jan 2019 10:42:14
Gini has competition for his midfield position now, he has seriously upped his game. Having another player fighting for your position stops complacency.
I did not see him playing much with Keita and Fabinho joining, so credit where its due.

At the risk of sounding like a troll, Do others really feel this here we go again vibe. I really hoped to be sitting clear in the league, which hasn't happened. i didn't really expect us to win the FA cup in all honesty but we went out on a very low. But i have this feeling that a bad and rough patch is around the corner. Luckily we have two home games left in JAN and next one away to brighton which is kind of an easy fixture. we should win all three. Also city has easy fixtures in Jan. But then in Feb they face arsenal and chelsea back to back before their CL round while we have hammers away and bournemouth. So we really have a big chance to get ahead in Feb if we win all games in Jan first. Dunno why i Have this eerie feeling with us in JAN. the games though are relatively easy so i think team has enough to win those.

PS - we have 3 games in JAN, while city have 6 - 3 epl - 2 - EFL 1- FA. now its true city are ahead of us as they are still in all competitions but we got only the league to play for and of course CL but extra games means more work for the city bench which i don't really think is that quality.
Thoughts? anybody else got a eerie feeling?

I have an eerie feeling this is our year. The amount of bubbles burst on here after ONE league loss is ridiculous. So we’re not going to win the treble after putting a b-side out against Wolves. Big deal.
Keep the faith, there's a lot more still to come from LFC this season.


2.) 09 Jan 2019 05:24:58
No not me. We lost the other night by fielding a weaker team against a team that aren't actually that bad.

We only just lost to city who everyone keeps saying are one of the best teams in Europe. I think klopp went into the game too negative, the Times when we actually went at city we nearly produced a goal. If we had gone at them properly I believe things would have been different.

We need to concentrate in the next game, get the win and settle any nerves again.


3.) 09 Jan 2019 05:31:05
Lets' just hope that the two losses to Man City and Wolves was our bad patch. Cannot afford to drop performances like that any more if we want to win the league.


4.) 09 Jan 2019 05:33:26
I always expected City to win the league so to be 4 points clear at this stage is massively surprising to me. Having said that now we are out of the FA Cup we have a great chance to win the league. We supporters need to have the courage to believe we can win the league and not doubt the team because we have an eerie feeling, we are on course to get over 100 points this season, why would you doubt this team?


5.) 09 Jan 2019 05:37:44
Its not just one game, although one game is all it might matter at the end of season. Its just been a LFC fan for so many years i haven't seen such a dominant team, and it just feels new. SO when we lost i had a feeling the team is a confidence team, some shoulders really dropped in that wolves game. something that is not expected from the top of the table team. I would have loved the next game to be at anfield to just get back on track. But we have a tricky brighton trip in between. Just saying moods would lift a lot if we beat them which i think we should.


6.) 09 Jan 2019 06:19:39
Absolutely agree with the op. It's all doom and gloom that will see us finish second.
If this is the case I can see klopp being replaced too.


7.) 09 Jan 2019 06:46:33
Replaced with who? Brendan Rogers?


8.) 09 Jan 2019 06:50:53
Congrats to Mo Salah - African player of the year again 👏

This season has the potential to be different. We have the potential to win something IF we are lucky with injuries/ suspensions.

If we lose Alisson, Van Dijk, Robbo or Bobby then we are in big trouble. If they play all our remaining games then we might win something 🤝.


9.) 09 Jan 2019 06:58:35
I'd add Salah as well to that list Ron. He is our top scorer and Shaqiri is no Salah replacement coz he plays better in a midfield 3 than out wide.


10.) 09 Jan 2019 07:17:49
We need Gomez back, and we need to go on a winning run.


11.) 09 Jan 2019 07:22:11
The key to any success will be keeping VVD, Alisson, Robbo and Salah fit.

My concern is left back, Whilst he’s a great guy around the dressing rooom, Moreno clearly showed ( against Wolves) why we need to strengthen in this area.


12.) 09 Jan 2019 07:22:37
I think we’ll win the league. I think the key to it is Allison staying fit. Shame about the fa cup but you can see klopp has made the league his main focus this year. It’s not a bad thing. I’m getting tired of the “klopp has to win something this year”. Not on this site, fans can say what they want, but in the media where every “pundit” bleats the same drivel. We are competing for the biggest titles at the moment and I am enjoying the ride. Champions league final last season, 4 points clear in the league this season? We are progressing at a time when football has never been more competitive.


13.) 09 Jan 2019 07:54:31
Spot on Aome.


14.) 09 Jan 2019 08:08:19
I think eerie feelings come with the territory of being a liverpool fan. At least until "Liverpool FC" is etched onto a trophy.


15.) 09 Jan 2019 08:12:21
Think old negative is expecting arsenal to still come through and win the league by 10 clear points
Up the pool.


16.) 09 Jan 2019 08:15:29
Have to agree with smeg here, I always expected city to be the top dogs so for us to be 1st at this stage of the season is brilliant. I got a feeling this is our year!


17.) 09 Jan 2019 08:56:44
Well the feeling will definitely end if we win at Brighton :) and then against palace and Leicester. That Leicester game could be tasty.


18.) 09 Jan 2019 09:16:36
Think people need to calm down and relax. City still have games ahead of them that they will drop points for example this weekened we have Brighton they have Wolves who is saying that they won't go out there and drop the points and we win then everyone will calm down yes it can happen the other way around but to be talked about as potential champions is massive for the Club. Win Lose Or Draw we will bounce back and even if its not our season it will come.


19.) 09 Jan 2019 09:21:12
A few weeks ago it was City who were feeling like this after 3 defeats in 4 league games.
We have lost 1 game away to the champions and most expensively assembled premier league team and manager in history.
The Wolves game doesn’t count it was less than a B team and will have no affect on the rest of the season.
I think you all need to get a grip we are just fine.

{Ed025's Note - you have to get away from the money thing bobby, you are saying that city are only a good side because of the money they have spent...thats not exactly true mate and liverpool have hardly been shy in the market themselves..


20.) 09 Jan 2019 10:47:13
Every game counts at Liverpool FC.


21.) 09 Jan 2019 17:18:42
City have a great squad but I would hardly say it's full galaticos like Madrid or Barcelona sides of the past. Pep has got them well drilled, and there's no doubt he's the best that what he does. A little like fergies last title winning side, once he left they fell apart. The had some bang average players in that side but he good get a tune out of them. We are in great position to progress again which is all we can ask for. Klopps done this before in the German league, I'm more more than happy with are continual improvement. Fingers crossed it brings a title.


22.) 09 Jan 2019 17:55:22
I couldn’t give a toss what City have spent I was merely stating that there’s no shame in losing to City away they have spent a lot of money to be the best team in Europe and they probably are.
I don’t see how it constitutes a crisis or a blip. It’s just ridiculous.

if anybody has been reading ed001 has suggested Allan is the player at napoli that actually is a decent midfielder and makes other players look much better, case in point - jorginho. I'd go by his words and look at allan instead.

Thanks for the reply ed. don't think he has a future a LFC after the rangers saga. Shame as i feel he was doing pretty well for himself at rangers playing wise. let's see if he can redeem it at reading.

akshit

{Ed001's Note - he was abysmal at Rangers. He never had a future before then and he certainly doesn't after his lazy efforts there. I am going to have to assume you never saw him play for Rangers if you feel he was doing well there.}

NEither would hurt us at all. been ages since Ozil has done anything and he is slow, James might do something in our favour making bayern a 10 man team.

A good move for Origi would be Sevilla or the hammers at the end of the season though. Both need a striker, Both play decent football, both have decent managers. Worst move for him would be spurs where he would become a Jansen or llorente as soon as Kane is fit. Also we yet have the need for Origi this season, we have one more game against everton :) . He should win his EPL medal with us and then think of his future. Also none of Lallana, Ox and Shaq are his direct replacement. You are confusing a striker with forward players. All strikers are forward players but not all forward players are strikers. Whenever he plays for us he creates chances and sometimes crucially scores. 'd keep both him and studger at the club this season because they both have roles to play. Imagine if we thump bayern 5-0 in the first game, don't you want players to get some rest for the return fixture?

{Ed025's Note - a good move for him would be accrington mate..

Matip? he is a defender. VVD and Matip are our second best shot. Since VVD is out of our first game against bayern it should be Gomez and Matip.

Wont be a popular opinion but his stock his high, we could sell him. I do not see a path for him in our team. It would be disappointing if we waste his career. Also i don't see him in the midfield or the front three. he lies in between both and that might no suit us or him much. I think he can be moved. Him and Kent can be sold for decent monies. Not much of chance will come their way.
